Update: this version of MyFakeWall is no longer working as of August 2013.
Last summer I shared with you a Google Docs template for creating fake Facebook profiles. That template was designed by Derrick Waddell for his students to use to create Facebook profiles for historical figures.
Applications for Education
Creating a fake Facebook page using My Fake Wall could be a fun way for students to publish biographical information about historical figures. Students could also use My Fake Wall to create fake Facebook pages about characters in the novels they read. One of my former colleagues had students do just that with the characters in To Kill a Mockingbird.
